Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

I was perusing our site this week and noticed a page that I wrote years ago. It was a simplified list of reasons why it is a great idea to take a river cruise. As I read through it I realized that this list still rings true, and, that would be a good time to share this list with all of you!

Top ten Reasons to River Cruise

10. Value
All inclusive packages allow you to budget your vacation and reduce the chance of unforeseen costs. Get your hotels, restaurants, tours, and nightlife all in one exciting cruise.

9. Romance
